focuses on the extraordinary stories of four separate characters. Bea is publicising a book about her late lover, a well-known comedian; Stella believes that what she does not know about chocolate is not worth knowing; isolated spinster Frances innocently plays with dolls houses whilst hiding a guilty secret; and Dora is a 'perfectly formed small person whose acting career is jeopardised during a run of Humpty Dumpty. The women are united by an underlying sense of loneliness, and the four monologues contain equal measures of comedy and pathos as the characters struggle to keep up impressions of contentment with their livesPerformers Lesley Joseph.
